First Daughter Suite (Off-Broadway at the Public's Anspacher Theater). First Daughter Suite is a new musical written by Michael John LaChiusa and directed by Kirsten Sanderson. The show is described as such: "Tony nominee Michael John LaChiusa imagines the inner lives and dreams of America's best-known daughters with a follow-up to his 1993 Public musical First Lady Suite. A historical fantasia in four parts, First Daughter Suite follows Patricia Nixon and daughters Tricia and Julie, Rosalynn and Amy Carter, Betty and Susan Ford, Patti Davis and mom Nancy Reagan, and Barbara Bush and daughter-in-law Laura as they strive to live meaningful lives in the public eye, while dealing with the complex private relationships all of us face with our parents and children. This new musical is a deeply felt new work about mothers, daughters and the surprising discoveries we make about one another as we grow." The cast includes Alison Fraser as Nancy Reagan and Betty Ford, Rachel Bay Jones as Laura Bush and Rosalynn Carter, Caissie Levy as Patti Davis and Julie Nixon, Theresa McCarthy as Robin Bush and Hannah Nixon, Betsy Morgan as Trisha Nixon and Susan Ford, Isabel Santiago as Anita Castelo, Carly Tamer as Amy Carter, Mary Testa as Barbara Bush and Barbara Walsh as Pat Nixon.
